Re: MATCHKING FAILURE!

Bob,
I believe that this CWD collection is our government agency's way to reduce an significantly over-populated area that CWD got into. Very high deer densities a few years back - story is that CWD came in courtesy of a game farm, same old story. We go through a set procedure, GPS kill site, give required info to DNR, meat is consumed when tested or OK'd. Big puzzle this year, they are not testing fawns? Are we to assume meat is OK, the same folks we always give it to are using it this year, they are not worried.
I take advantage of this situation to do some neat testing.

That was nuthin, in the good old days we would put 20+ deer into a truck in four hours - then straight to an autopsy lab. Shooting from choppers is more better... 9 deer in about nine seconds was one of my personal bests [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

They tell me I am retired. I am fortunate to have great opportunities to shoot and hunt. I have even convinced some people it is work (not my wife tho...). Writing the articles is a real challenge, I would usually rather be out shooting. Matter of fact I usually am out shooting instead of writing - how else can I get these neat experiences to work into the writing.

This site is a great place to take a break from the day - we owe Len a bunch for that! Now Dave King is another story - I am convinced that anyone who can talk his wife into going on an elk hunt should be in international politics! But he is a trigger-puller,, he knows a lot of neat stuff and he keeps gunsmiths occupied.

Great guys here, that's the bottom line.
